Doll Hospital is an art and literature print journal on mental health.

We believe print is the best medium for this project — a refuge from toxic comment sections and constant link skipping. Something tangible to slip in your book bag and read on the bus. Something still, something quiet, something just for you.

Doll Hospital is a bi-annual art and literature print journal on mental health. It encourages work with an intersectional focus as the history of mental health is so closely tied to the history of race, class, gender identity, sexuality, colonialism, chronic illness, and disability. We explore notions of growth, trauma, chronic illness and childhood, and identify how this lives in conversation with mental health. Constructs of white girlhood continue to exclude and alienate women of colour, particularly black women. This is unacceptable. We are interested in reclaiming these spaces, redefining innocence, and standing, unapologetically, in our trauma.
